Are you certain that you have the BlackBerry data plan on your roaming (local) SIM?

Not just any old data plan, you need the BLACKBERRY one

You could leave your T-Mobile SIM card in your 8900 and call them to activate international data. But like Jadey said, you must have a BlackBerry data plan on the SIM card you're using to get BB Messenger, email, etc.

I was under the impression that Tmobile only has an International email plan (as opposed to international data).
